Everyday heroes

Often times the words "thank you" are not expressed enough to those people who go above and beyond to help others. On Friday evening, our daughter was involved in a single car rollover crash on State Road 200 in front of Pep Boys. Her truck landed on the driver's side with her arm pinned under the truck.

Nicholas, Kevin and Jacob from Pep Boys jumped into action and lifted her truck so that my daughter could slide her arm out. Kevin took his shirt and applied pressure to her open wounds and saved her arm — and probably her life.

We owe a deep debt of gratitude to the heroes from Pep Boys for springing into action. Also many thanks to the Fire Department - especially to the one who held our daughter while they used the jaws of life, the fantastic paramedics and the MRMC emergency room staff.

Nicole is alive and in one piece because of some very amazing, wonderful people of Ocala. Thank you all and God Bless.
